Tell Congress: Support HR 3785

To Repeal Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act

Conservative Action Alerts had reported the dangers relating to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 in the last months of 2011 before it was signed into law by Barack Obama on New Years Eve.

Section 1021 of the NDAA contains language that endangers American citizens by nullifying essential liberties guaranteed by the Constitution -- rights to privacy and a fair trial.

HR 3785 -- which repeals section 1021 -- was introduced by Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) on January 18, 2012. A portion of Rep. Paul's statement is as follows:

"Section 1021 essentially codifies into law the very dubious claim of presidential authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force to indefinitely detain American citizens without access to legal representation or due process of law. Section 1021 provides for the possibility of the US military acting as a kind of police force on US soil, apprehending terror suspects – including Americans — and whisking them off to an undisclosed location indefinitely. No right to attorney, no right to trial, no day in court.”

HR 3785 reads simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."

PLEASE STAND WITH CONSERVATIVE ACTION ALERTS, YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS, AND THE CONSTITUTION AND SIGN THIS PETITION AND SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO CONGRESS DEMANDING THEY PASS THIS BILL!

What in the devil is going on in Washington DC. Those who we elected to represent us is only now representing themselves. The election will speak volumes as to how the legal people of the US really feels. That is if the elections is a fair one. Enough is enough.

Gentlemen I urge you as your employer and a taxpaying citizen to restore combat pay to our troops in foreign countries regardless as to whether they are being shot at or not. Anything less is non-negotiable. You people have shut down the government all on your own because you did not listen to your employers and do what we told you. If our combat troops do not deserve combat pay then you certainly do not deserve to be paid either for your participation or lack thereof in shutting down the United States Government. This is nothing more than the arrogance of a man who can't have his way and should be made to resign as well as as the rest of the liberal Democrats and Republican's in the Senate and the House. Get with it people and do your jobs and do them right the first time.

We continue to send money overseas - BUT - we can't send money to the men who are overseas protecting us? What in the world? But the great Obamacare is working overtime to get things in ship shape. I wonder if they are follwing the law and paying overtime??
